Re: Rare Roman coin minted thousands of years ago

Re: LSD laced cake apparently sneaked onto a rally

Definitely not ordinary dope, weed, grass, and not lsd. More a bad manufactured heavy, such as spice. I was there from the beginning, doing first aid as they dropped. The symptoms were weird ..the first two who dropped we initially thought sunstroke but they were stoney, then for the extreme cases ...
